Living on Maui is fruit heaven. Now that we are receiving a weekly CSA box, I find myself having to come up with more and more amazing things to make to use up all the bounty.
Today is the first of what will likely be hundreds of smoothies to come. Enjoy!
Star Fruit Smoothie
- 1/2 cup organic rice milk
- 1/2 cup organic coconut flesh
- 1 organic star fruit, chopped
- 3 big ice cubes
- 1 big scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Drink Powder, Green Superfood
Place all the ingredients in a blender, blend and serve!
The sweetness is super subtle with this one. If you like your smoothies to be sweeter, agave nectar could be added, or a slice of pear or two. I loved the creaminess created by the coconut though, and I’m thinking this might have to be a constant ingredient I work with!
I'm guessing that is 1/2 cup organic rice milk. 🙂 Just a quick FYI editing note. Please feel free to do the same to me.
This looks absolutely delicious. I've really enjoyed the Amazing Grass Chocolate Superfood Powder. You should tweet them your post and let them RT it. They love doing that. It's good advertising for them, and for you.
Starfruits really are in abundance right now, aren't they? I had one at a party last week. There were a bunch sitting out on a table and everyone dug in. They were so juicy. The first time I had starfruit was when I was 15. A vegeterian restaurant opened in my small town and they served slices of starfruit on the side of their plates. It was amazing. It is one of my favorite fruits. How does the chocolate work with the starfruit?
Amanda darling! Thank you for the edit!!! I would have never caught that. I swear, when I'm rich and famous the first thing I'm getting is an editor that just walks around editing everything I do!
I will definitely tweet Amazing Grass. I have been drinking their chocolate superfoods for years now. Soon after I found out I was gluten intolerant, in fact. I was so anemic that I wanted something to help support my nutritional intake. This has become invaluable to me.
The chocolate as you know has its own sweetness, although in this recipe seems to lose it somewhat. The whole thing is really subtle on the sweetness, and I actually tasted the green more. I love it, but then I'm not into super sweet drinks, which is why I offer the option to add agave nectar if that is preferred. What I really loved was the texture and creaminess the coconut offered. LOVED that!
